Will woodwork for food

06-24-2011 04:40 PM by Brad | 5 comments »

I haven’t posted in a while due to business trips, family visits and our annual Spring planting. Unfortunately, the lack of posting corresponds with an absence from the workshop. Alas, my sanctuary has sat idle as I go about my other duties. Still, that doesn’t mean I don’t take every opportunity to pick up my hand tools when the occasion arises. Our newly-built raised vegetable bed is a case in point. Last year my lady and I planted a vegetable garden for the first time....

Traditional Chinese Woodworking #4: Chinese Hammers: the Common Unknown Tool

Anybody who has studied Chinese woodworking will not doubt have come across prints like this one where a ancient Chinese woodworker is depicted pounding on a piece of furniture with what appears to be the blunt edge of an axe. For example the Lu Ban Jing, a woodworkers manual written around in the 15th century, shows a woodworker assembling a table by pounding on one of its legs with the blunt side of an axe. During much of China’s long and colorful history, China has been more or le...

Ramblings Loosely Related to Art History #4: Another Depiction of Jesus as a Carpenter

10-13-2009 08:26 AM by naomi weiss | 3 comments »

This painting, from 1620, entitled ‘The Childhood of Christ’ was executed by Gerrit Van Honthurst, a Dutch painter from Utrecht. He travelled to Italy to imitate Caravaggio. In fact, loads of Dutch artists took the trip, and were known as the Dutch Caravaggisti. For an excellent intro to Caravaggio, Simon Schama’s The Power of Art is fantastic. He’s refreshingly funny, so he makes art history particularly exciting! Here’s the first part. By clicking it, you c...

Woodworking? Or Carpentry?

10-12-2007 01:34 PM by Dekker | 14 comments »

I am reminded once again about the difference between woodworking and woodworking. To the lay-person, anytime you take up your hammer, nails, saw, glue and wood, you are practicing the art of woodworking. At least that’s the way my wife sees it, and when I suggested that I was going to spend some time in the workshop this weekend to play with a box design I had dreamt up, she immediately suggested that I do one of the other woodwork projects that need to be done such as the bathroom ...
